Here's my new bike. It's a '98 Kawasaki Vulcan 800. It's a bit smaller than my bike now ('86 Honda Shadow 1100), but I like it alot. It's been custom painted, lots of extra chrome and some pipes on it that have set car alarms off when I drive by. Poppy has been here this week so we've had 2 bikes to go cruisin on. It's been great.

I took Makayla to a real salon to get her hair cut. I've always cut her hair myself. I will never cut her hair again. I can't believe the difference. I don't have to do anything to her hair and it looks so beautiful. Her hair has this natural curl, it's so pretty.

So Grandma and Grandpa came to visit. (Thank you Mom and Dad for making the drive) We had so much fun. We took the kids roller skating for the first time with Grandma and Grandpa. It was so much fun to watch the kids skate. I could totally see their real personalities come out. Like Jackson didn't take one break. He was a skating maniac. He was dripping with sweat and had the best time ever. Makayla was a little timid to try it by her self and very careful. Isaac wouldn't let anyone help, and tried very hard for a little while but could get it quick enough so he quit and was done for the rest of the night. That is so my kids.
We also went to a hot air balloon festival while they were here. It was a lot of fun. I was definitely a high light of their visit and our summer.
The kids cried a lot after they left:(
Oh and I didn't take any picture, but I swear they came to visit. I'm not making it up.

Wow, what a task, taping of this project was. Makayla helped me so much I could have done it without her. I've been wanting to paint my room for awhile but I knew it would be a big job. It feels so good to have it done. I only painted the one wall. Yeah I did it:)

Jackson is finally old enough for swim lesson:) I love it. Last year it was so hard to watch Makayla and Isaac at swim because I had to entertain Jackson. He's getting a little better at listening to his "coach" but he's pretty flighty. It's really funny to watch him and the teachers inneract. He just does what he wants and they try to keep him with the group.
Yesterday they had him swim by himself in the deep end. He didn't like that so much. He got really freaked out when his short little arms couldn't grab the side of the pool.
I bought the kids a little blow up pool for the back yard. Somedays it keep them real busy and it's a lifesaver, but somedays it's so annoying. Like everyday when jackson gets in the pool with his clothes on or when he runs out naked after a bath and swims in the dirty pool water.
One Sunday afternoon, we came in from church and Jackson went straight from the car to the pool with all of his church clothes and shoes on and jumped in:)
I just love my little sprite.

We had soooo much fun having the Carters visit. Our kids are all getting a little older and are able to play better, without fighting. It makes everything a little more relaxing. Makayla and Audrey have know each other their whole lives.
You can tell Isaac likes Rachel a lot because I've never seen him play barbie with anyone before. Rachel has a way of calming Isaac down a little, which is really great.
Every year our ward has a bike parade it's one of my favorite traditions. We slept in late and made it to the parade when everyone was leaving:( But that's O.K., that's the nice thing about traditions, there's always next year.
